A systems engineer has developed plans to build an actual 'working' version of the USS Enterprise.
The man behind all this, known only as 'Dan', isn't letting the inconvenience that the Enterprise and all of its technologies are merely works of fiction get in his way. Dan believes that the blueprints can be turned in to a real vessel within 20 years using nuclear power to travel to the moon within three days and even Mars within three months.
"The Gen1 Enterprise will be the same size as future Enterprises or larger," he says. "It will have 1g gravity like the future ships and ample comfortable living space. It will have a bridge with 1g gravity where the captain and key crew members will often work."
"Every detail of the first Enterprise has been planned out to the smallest degree, from the inner workings of the 'gravity wheel' to the coverings on the exterior shielding, as well as the outline of the first ten missions and the political problems that will have to be overcome."
